ChocoMuseo, Cusco

(4.1/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
More than a simple chocolate shop, ChocoMuseo aims to explain the chocolate-making process through exhibits and workshops. Visitors can take a free tour of the exhibits, but the real treat lies in making and tasting your own creations through one of the workshops. Every lesson sends you home with a generous portion of chocolates handmade by you, but if you're pressed for time, you can explore the menu of delicious pre-made treats. Plan to see ChocoMuseo and other attractions that appeal to you using our Cusco family vacation planner.

  • Great range of chocolate to buy- wouldn't account for spending more than 10mins here as very little ' museum'. Taste some chocolate, buy some chocolate- happy days! 
  • There is the option to take the chocomuseo with a guide. You explain the history of the chocolate and its manufacturing. At the end of the tour there are tasting of chocolate and preparations of the same with alcohol.

  • He service is excellent, entry released and attention personalized, you dan to taste many types of chocolate and you give to know all the process of its manufacture. If you want to buy is not for anything expensive and rich well. There is a mini Cafe that can consume diversity of products made with chocolate. Highly recommended.

  • Do not go here!!! Customer service is terrible, the staff doesn't care or seem to enjoy being there, and worst of all they don't protect your valuables while you take the class! I have pictures to prove that someone stole my $300 sunglasses while I was grinding the chocolate. After telling the staff and emailing their customer service they have done absolutely nothing to help. No discount on my class, no complimentary anything, no help with filing a police report, they didn't even look around the store. Don't go here!!! There are way better things to do in Cusco!
  • We read about the "bean to bar" class and were pretty much hooked as soon as we read about it. The class was offered 3 times per day and takes 2+ hours. Included in said class was an overview of where the beans come from, the process of fermentation that makes them legit and then an actual class during which you make the chocolate we all love! During the class, you roast, peel, crush, grind and taste chocolate throughout the process of it becoming some dreamy Valentine's Day delight! We learned that roasted beans give off banana, coffee and olive notes - cool party knowledge, check! After finishing the process of prepping the beans, you try three different drinks - chocolate tea, Mayan hot chocolate and Peruvian hot chocolate (not sure if that's the real name, but that's what we called it). Following the drinks, you get to pour your own chocolates and mix them with any fixins you like! After pouring they take an hour to set so don't make the mistake we did of having to leave right after the class. They were super accommodating however and rushed our ( in a freezer we think). A really fun and unique way to spend a few hours in Cusco. Well worth the $25 per person!
  • So much fun! Free chocolate samples and great desserts to order at the end of your free tour. A few streets off Plaza de Armas.
  • Again like the pisco "museum" it's not really a museum but you can learn a lot about how chocolate is made and get some nice samples. The cafe is also pretty good - try the fondue!
  • I visited and learned A LOT about chocolate during my trip to Cusco. It was so much fun making the chocolate, but even more fun eating the finished product. The teacher was very informative and had a great sense of humor. Recommended if you have time to spare while in Cusco.
